I love the 60's!

The great thing about hair, is there are always new trends.  Some of them you love, some of them you hate!  And just like other trends in fashion, 'What goes around comes back again'!

There's definitely a huge 60's revival going on right now.  If you watch Mad Men like me, you've discovered that the 60's were not only about great music.  There was also plenty of lust-worthy hair!  It was all about the big curvy curls, curtain bangs, roller sets, bee-hives, and a ton of volume.

For a hairstylist like me, this comes as a welcomed change.  After so many years of women wearing their hair super straight, I am thirsty for more creativity.  And with the onset of this 60's trend, I suspect I will be doing more up dos, and curls.

Time to pull out your 'teasing comb' and hairspray.  If you have a set of hot-rollers, even better!  And of course the celebrities are doing it too!  I particularly like Gwen Stefani's big beautiful bouffant!

Do You Have a Hair Crush Like Me?

Being the hair nerd that I am, I'm always on the look out for new hair tips, tricks, tools, products, styles, etc.  It's safe to say, anything related to hair, instantly grabs my attention.  So much so, that I often find myself surfing the web until well over midnight exploring new ideas.  Getting up with two little ones at 6:30 the following morning is never fun, but some how evening after evening, I am lured back to my computer in search of more great hair ideas.

In my excitement of finding new hair ideas, I'm always eager to share them with others.  This is what has led me to start this blog.  

Starting a blog, much like updating my facebook status, is a little unnerving for me.  I find myself wondering if people really care what 'Emily' has to say;  but, I'm going to take a stab at it.  If nothing else, this will be a place for me to document my years as a hairdresser.  I'm sure down the road, looking back at all the changes in hair trends will be worth a good laugh.

So welcome to my realm of hair!  I hope you will enjoy it!
